RAeS events deliver expert content, insight and networking across the breadth of technical, engineering and business subjects affecting aerospace professionals.
Our annual calendar of around 20 events of lectures, technical visits, competitions and field trips are designed to support your professional development and industry knowledge.
The Branch has been very fortunate to secure Tim Anstey, Boeing Chief Architect of Cabin and Network Systems, to speak to us about ‘Connectivity’ on the B777X. Not only is this an exciting aircraft to be discussing but we believe the subject is also a very important aspect of modern aviation and one that is set to become even more so in the future.
We all live in a connected world and expect to be connected at all times and on-board passenger connectivity is already a major product differentiator between airlines. At the same time, the ability to connect to aircraft with ground through new technologies is revolutionising many processes in flight operations, maintenance, and engineering. As such we expect this topic to appeal to industry professionals and enthusiasts alike.
Our speaker, Tim Anstey, leads a cross-functional team responsible for product strategy and integration of airplane information systems. He is a 22-year veteran of Boeing, and has spent the past decade designing and integrating system software and applications for the Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) and Onboard Network System across the Boeing fleet. Within industry, he was the technical focal for development of the Air Transport Association Electronic Logbook Interoperability specification and a representative on the ARINC EFB Sub-committee. In addition to his industry activities, Tim serves as Boeing’s representative to EASA for EFB regulatory activities. Mr. Anstey is a graduate of the University of Washington, Seattle with a Bachelor and Master’s degree in Civil Engineering. Before joining Boeing, his responsibilities included software design and development of consumer and business products for various companies within the Puget Sound region and in Washington State.

We are pleased to announce our first field trip of 2018. We have now secured 30 spaces for a field trip to visit the latest Airbus A350-1000.
Measuring nearly 74 metres from nose-to-tail, the A350-1000 is the longest-fuselage version of Airbus’ all-new family of twin-aisle, widebody jetliners. In a typical three-class configuration, featuring the company’s 18-inch-wide economy class seats for modern comfort, the A350-1000 seats a total of 366 passengers – who can expect a spacious and quiet cabin, wider seats and elegant ambient lighting that contributes to a beautiful interior while also minimising the effects of jetlag.
The security process for the visitors will be held at Cathay City front gate, transport directly from Cathay City to the display aircraft at HAECO, and return from the display aircraft directly back to Cathay City. Airbus team will be around the aircraft to introduce different areas of the new plane.
This event is open to EXISTING MEMBERS only and will be over subcribed. This is first come first serve. DO NOT report to Cathay City, unless you hold confirmation from the Branch to avoid disappoint.
For the lucky few, have a great day!
